Meet the Team
Paul Pagac | Broker
I have lived in the Forks area for over 36 Years, I first came out with some friends that kidnapped me from my native Wisconsin to cut shake bolts in the middle of winter. It was fun and I enjoyed the area. I had visited the west coast before but had never been this far North. I came back the next year with plans on leaving for Alaska in the spring to help a friend build his Homestead House near Fairbanks. Since I am a carpenter by trade I was working here as a carpenter with a local contractor. As it turned out I never left, I got married and raised a family here. In 1986 I started my own General Construction Company and ran it till I got my Real Estate Brokers license. I am happy to be in a business that reflects my building background, and to be working with wonderful clients.
“Paul Pagac of Forks Avenue Real Estate went above and beyond to help us complete an estate sale for our family. His familiarity with the Forks area and local contractors was a HUGE help when it came to making necessary repairs to make the sale go through. I can’t imagine having to do all of that ourselves — he made it easy and I would highly recommend his services! Thank you Paul for all your hard work!”
“Paul Pagac helped us find a vacant lot in Forks. We had only three days for finding the lot and making an offer, and we could not have been more satisfied with the process. Paul is extremely knowledgeable of the area and very, very friendly. He made the process a pleasant experience for us. As we live in Germany, he handled the closing without us. He went out of his way to help us with issues that were not even related to the purchase of the land. For example, he let us send heavy tools for yard work to his office and stored them for us. When we visited in summer, he learnt that we had our soil test scheduled and showed up to support us. This was really very helpful for us, as we have never done a soil test before. Should we ever need a realtor in the area again, we would choose Paul again in a heartbeat!!”
“I was surprised how soon my recreational property sold at the price I wanted. Paul, an outdoorsman had plenty of contacts interested in a sportsman’s get-away. Thanks!”
“Paul got the job done, what is that saying…Get err done !! Yep he did alright, Thanks Paul. He lives n Forks WA. so it made it easy for him to show our place. My place was not a easy place to show, my cabin and lot were 15 miles off grid and only accessible by means of logging road and behind 2 locked gates. We had a good amount of showings and Paul got err done. Thanks again Paul, I have your number saved. Brent, Seattle”
“We had a great time working with Paul, and found our second home. It was just what we were looking for, a place away from the city.”

“Paul was a wonderful part of my home-buying experience the past year! I’m a first-time buyer, relatively new to Forks, and Paul gave ne the necessary tools to make a well-informed decision about my purchase in the Forks area. He is very knowledgeable of the local properties in the Forks area and he was great help in finding reliable services for going through a short-sale purchase. The process can be arduous, but Paul’s advice and support made the whole ordeal smooth and timely. he got to know me and my interest on a personal level and made himself available for any questions or concerns I had. He brought a mom n’ pop attitude to the whole experience and still keeps in touch with me to see how the house is doing. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Paul to purchase my home and I would definitely recommend his services to others in the area.”
“Paul is an excellent realtor. He made every effort to help us purchase a 5 acre parcel for recreational purposes, and kept us up to date regarding the transaction. Paul researched and showed us the property, and was always available to answer Questions. He is a long time local resident, and has exceptional knowledge of the Olympic Peninsula area. This makes a big difference in giving sound advice. He was also very thorough, checking into the power and water availability, road access, septic requirements, zoning and covenants. He wanted to make sure we were well informed”
R.W. & M.W.
“Paul helped us find our perfect “Fish House” in Forks! He was always available to meet with us when we could get over to Forks on the weekend and showed us everything we asked to see. We would highly recommend Paul and the staff at Forks Avenue Real Estate for your property search on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.”

I have lived in Forks since the 6th grade. I met my husband in high school and have raised two wonderful boys. Before taking a job with Forks Avenue Real Estate, I worked with my husband in construction and still continue to do so in my free time. I have always enjoyed all of the unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities that are abundant on the Olympic Peninsula. My goal is to ensure your real estate experience is a pleasant one, whether your looking to purchase or sell a home. If your looking for honest professional service to oversee your listing and buying experience, please give me a call.
“This is our second home and the purchase went so smoothly. Thank you for all your help during our search for the perfect home for our growing family. During the sale, we were expecting our 3rd child. And this sale went so smoothly, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Thank you so much!”
“One word- Excellent! Smooth, fast and easy process. We look forward to doing business with you again, but MANY years down the road…we love our home!”
“Service was cordial, expedient and with professionalism. Thank you, we give you an A+!!”

I was born and raised in Forks and truly love this small community and the relaxed lifestyle that comes along with it. You may also find me working at one of the local coffee stands in town where I’ve made many friendships over the years. I enjoy coaching little league volleyball in the rainy winter months and horseback riding through the beautiful Pacific Northwest trails in the summer months. I look forward to helping you with all of your real estate needs.

Erin Queen | Designated Broker
I grew up in the Forks area and then spent several years living in Idaho and California. The time away helped me to truly appreciate everything that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I especially enjoy my family, traveling and meeting new people. In some of my free time, I volunteer coach several volleyball teams within our school district, commission the 5th and 6th grade volleyball teams through the West End Youth League, am active with Habitat for Humanity and am a member of our local Chamber of Commerce. I truly love Forks; the clean rivers and hiking trails, the deep relationships with the people of the community and the relaxed lifestyle. I know that I am successful when the people I work with are successful.
I would love the opportunity to help you with all of your real estate needs and find that the best way to conduct my business is by giving my clients a full picture of all options and helping them to make their dreams a reality . Call me for honest professional service.
“Lyric and I sold our home with Erin. It was an amazing experience. She was kind and thoughtful with us through the entire experience. She gave us helpful advice to help us sell our house faster and was always there to answer our questions. If you are looking for a realtor look no further, she is who you need!”
“Erin Queen helped me overcome many obstacles during the negotiations to sell my property. She was very informative, patient and timely in answering all my questions, if I had another property to sell, I would love to have her as my agent.”
“Outstanding experience. Erin Queen exceeded our expectations of service while adding local knowledge and experience. We look forward to being a part of this Forks community as a result of our experience with her.”
“Erin, you were amazing. You made it so I didn’t have to do anything except sign papers. You were so easy to get a hold of and you answered my hundreds of questions. Thank you so much for getting our house sold so fast!”
“Erin Queen was a wonderful agent, she helped us with every aspect to buying our home. We first looked at building and she gave us directions to the steps we needed to take. We, however, found our dream house and bought that home. She was in contact with us through every step. She also was a wonderful problem solver for complications that arose, often finding a good resolution for both the buyer and seller. We moved to this area from out of town, and found a home we hope to live in the rest of our lives. We would recommend her to anyone!”
“From the day I contacted your office, I’ve been nothing but impressed with the level of service I received. Erin Queen was extremely helpful in everything. She was always there when I had questions and if she didn’t have the answer right away, she went the extra mile to find the answers for me. Erin made me feel relaxed and gave me the confidence I needed to go ahead with the purchase, knowing that I wouldn’t find “surprises” later down the road. Thank you Erin and Forks Avenue Real Estate, you guys are awesome!!”
“The quality of service and personal attention that I received from Erin was exceptional. She surpassed all of my expectations and kept me up to speed on all the particulars throughout the transaction. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone needing an agent.”
“…as my husband and I do not live close by it was hard to be at the place when contractors came by. Erin was always there! She was always available to go to the house and to help us find contractors and to help us contact them. She was great! I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell! Thank you Erin!”
“This agency is awesome. Erin Queen worked very hard to sell my home. She went above and beyond the call. ”
“We wanted to buy a home for so long. It always felt like it was out of reach. Erin made it seem possible. She found us choices and made it happen. Thank you!”
“Erin did an awesome job!”
“Buying a house is a complicated process, especially for first time buyers like us. Erin guided us through every step and made it easy. We never had to worry about missing or forgetting something because she kept us in the loop at all times. Thanks Erin for your personal and professional service.”
“Erin was wonderful to work with! She was so accommodating, taking us to see just about every available property until we found the “perfect one”. She explained every step of the process and was there for us at any time we had a question or asked for her advice. Living in Florida, this could have been a complete disaster and nightmare for us if not for Erin and her conscientiousness….she was the reason our purchase was so effortless for us!”
“Erin was very professional to deal with. Explained all details very well and was easy to talk with. Would recommend her to anyone and would do business with her again.”
